If you have ever dreamed of growing up in the African Bush, then a stay at an exclusive bush
home will be magical.
Luxury bush homes, situated on their own private game reserve, are often booked on an
‘exclusive’ basis during school holidays to ensure a personal and flexible safari experience.
The reserves are home to a wide and diverse variety of wildlife, such as wilderbeest, white
rhino and giraffe, but not predators or elephants. Therefore, in addition to taking drives, you
can also explore on horseback or by foot, enabling you to experience much closer sightings.
Day trips to a ‘Big Five’ Reserve can be made for those not wishing to combine a stay here
In between game viewing, children can join in with the daily activities, from changing a tyre
to rounding up rhino, whilst adults relax with a good book or glass of wine.
Bushmen entered Waterberg around two thousand years ago. They produced rock paintings at Lapalala within the Waterberg, including depictions of rhinoceros and antelope. Early Iron Age settlers in Waterberg were Bantu, who had brought cattle to the region. This is an area where the heat is quenched and aching muscles soothed by the mineral baths of the myriad hot spring and the beauty which lies in its superb vistas, mountain gorges, clear streams and rolling bushveld hills, all rich in indigenous species of plant and animal life – including the ‘Big Five’.
